No More M&Ms In Your McFlurry?

McDonald's Corporation (NYSE: MCD)'s famous McFlurrys might be missing a key ingredient soon.

"An industry source familiar with Mars' thinking said the company has had talks with the world's largest fast-food chain and other partners about its candies' inclusion in super sugary products," according to a Reuters report.

"The elimination of M&Ms - which contain 7.5 teaspoons of sugar, about a third as much as the large McFlurry, per serving - is just one idea on the table; also under consideration with McDonald's and other partners, are recipe reformulations, the source said."
